Guidance for Remote Participation in Public Meetings/Hearings
Pocopson Township Public Meetings and Hearings are in-person. The Township continues to utilize the GoToMeeting Platform as an accommodation for virtual attendance by anyone who is not able to attend in-person. The GoToMeeting Access Code is available by contacting the Township Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the Township Office at 610-793-2151. If you are accessing a public meeting or hearing via GoToMeeting, be sure to familiarize yourself with the collaboration technology, including your laptop audio/video setup, for a productive experience during the meetings. A few meeting etiquette pointers:
- All participants should remain on mute, to prevent background noise, until public comment is open or until you are called to present an agenda item.
- Be sure to enter your full name (i.e., Dad or Microsoft PC User are not good attendee names) when accessing GoToMeeting from your laptop. This enables us to quickly identify a specific participant who needs to present or respond to a topic.
- For participants calling in on phones, we just see Caller 01, Caller 02, etc. We won’t know who you are until you identify yourself when you begin to speak.
- If your internet connectivity is poor, consider turning off your webcam.
If you suddenly lose audio and/or video, please try logging in or calling in again. If you can’t be heard when you wish to speak, please call the Township at 610-793-2151, 610-793-9390, or text to 484-947-9381.
